thought your dad was a fugitive or a spy. >> well, because we moved so much. it's was like a really interesting story. but then again, all our clothes had a little bell on them from the phone company and like our pants and socks and our shoe laces and everything. so i didn't think that was a very good cover. so it probably is true, it was probably the phone company. >> jimmy: yeah, everything you wear had a phone or something on it, yeah. >> yeah. >> jimmy: yeah. was it weird growing up being a new kid everywhere you went? >> i was a new kid everywhere i want, yup. which is extremely fun when you have an eye patch and big blue glasses. >> jimmy: no, did you? >> i did. >> jimmy: you had a lazy eye? >> i had like a something -- yeah. an eye thing. >> jimmy: wow. >> you know, they do that -- i don't know if they still do that. they put you out there and they're like, look, it's blank the new kid. i was like, with my big blue glasses and my eye patch. >> jimmy: oh my gosh. wow. but then you're like, i've got to into acting. >> no, you know what though? it does make you -- comedy helps. i'm like, but i'm really funny. >> jimmy: yeah. did you always want to be an actor, did you want to be a
